We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
I aim to send plants on the next Tuesday or Wednesday after the order is received so if you order by Monday or Tuesday you should get them that week. Plants are delivered by DPD next day delivery which is fully tracked so you can see when your plants will arrive. I don't like to take more orders than I can process in a week so if I get too many I tend to temporarily close the webshop until I've caught up.
Violas are a cottage garden favourite with their colourful flowers produced from late Spring above neat tufts of leaves. They are best grown in a sunny or lightly shaded position near the front of a flower border, in rockeries or even tubs and containers.Many violas have strongly fragrant flowers.
Shown here is Viola 'Jackanapes' . Allegedly named after the pet monkey belonging to the famous gardener Gertrude Jekyll , it has masses of cheerful flowers like smiling faces of an unusual maroon and yellow and are sweetly scented.
